    I have the exact opposite issue, the arm is legit stuck in its sleeve, I can't extend it at all, which is why my gigas are in robot mode (also because i messed up the Graviter tail :(  )

    Yo I just got my Chromasaur here and the way he just rests precariously on his flight stand is gahhhbage, right? I lost those 2 bits of chrome plastic that sit under the removable blue semi-circle straight away after a tuumble-and-catch. They are gone lol. The stand is beautiful and totally unusable... What do people think about this? So risky to have him displayed anywhere prominent where a shelf dive would be catastrophic. Or am I mental?

    GP are awesome but they cut these corners -- so infuriating. (I actually passed on Grimlock due to those bad ankle pivots)

    For dino flight mode you can look into Flightpose stands. They are quite popular for MP scaled flying items.

    The lights were a preorder bonus, iirc.

    You got me curious so I pulled out the box and double checked to make sure I wasn't remembering wrong. Mine has lights and I didn't preorder it. Bought it in September. It might've been leftover stock from when it was a pre-order, I dunno, but I definitely got lights in the blue chrome version without pre-ordering.

    How necessary are the replacement parts for the first batch of Gaudenter? My Superator never came with the replacement parts and I'm considering getting a first run Red Gaudenter, but I'm worried that it'll have foot issues....

    Well, I tried ordering from TFSafari, they asked me NOT to order yet, but to wait a little more as shipping to US was a big problem, so I did wait, I asked every two week or so, and they continued saying to wait, then they said shipping was normalizing, and I asked them if I was ok placing the order and the response was "oh, we're now out of stock!"....

    Then I tried with RoboToyBase, placed the order, and got an e-mail 3 days later "we're sorry, but metallic blue is out of stock", at least they refunded me quickly.

    Getting blue metallic gaudenter has been a nightmare, can't find it. I checked that Netherlands site [email protected] recommended, but its too expensive, heck, they charge you an extra 8 euros for paying with paypal to "entice" you to pay via transfer.

    I've looked all over facebook, these boards, and nothing. I know someone sold one for $170 here last month, but didn't have enough to buy it at the time.

    I know this sounds like beating a dead horse, but again, if someone has a metallic blue one, and are willing to sell, please let me know, is the only one I'm missing to complete the set, I could get the red one, but I really want the blue one out of childhood nostalgia.

    Thanks and sorry!

    How are you able to fix this? Mine is stuck like this, see below. No matter how I pull it, it won't come off. I am afraid if I pull too hard that I might break something in the inside.

    Really wish I had better memory of how I did it. All I recall is it being a huge pain to disassemble and reassemble, and I still have a spring leftover I've still not figured out where it went. Best I can suggest after this much time is photograph everything as you remove every screw you can.
